The request was partially successful.

From: L.K.Barber

Dear Ministry of Social Development,

For the years 1990-1995 what were the qualifications necessary for a client to receive a "Widows" benefit?
What were the criteria?
How was this established?
What were the procedures & guidelines?
From what external agencies, if any, would the Ministry require additional information?

Yours Faithfully
L K Barber
